Hürrem Sultan[edit]

Hi! After discussion that we had about Mahidevran I'm here to ask a question because I think as a Turkish you should have knowledge about Turkey. Did Hürrem Sultan have any mosque to be named after her like some other sultanas?Keivan.fTalk 19:36, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes, Haseki Mosque in İstanbul was commissioned by Süleyman I for Hürrem. As for Mahidevran, nobody knows who the subject of the said image was. The original title is sultana which is not a personal name. I wrote to the source (BBC your paintings) and they replied that they don't have any information on this painting. Since this is an encyclopedia we should use only the sourced info. We are not allowed to name an anonymous image Mahidevran. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 21:03, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
Isn't any image or article about Haseki mosque in English Wikipedia?Keivan.fTalk 21:11, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
I am afraid there is none in WP. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 21:30, 15 January 2014 (UTC)
Please join this discussion. It's about Mahidevran's photo. Keivan.fTalk 15:22, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. I don't edit in tr-WP. But I replied Maurice in en WP. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 18:01, 22 February 2014 (UTC)
Hi again. Can you make articles about Haseki Sultan Mosque and Şah Sultan Mosque? I'm really interested in making articles about them but my Turkish is not good and I can't use Turkish wiki. Also, did Mahidevran have a mosque named after her?Keivan.fTalk 16:25, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Mahidevran mosque ? Not to my knowledge. By the way, if she had one, she would be buried there. So I don't think she ever had a mosque . Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:45, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Metropolitan municipalities in Turkey[edit]

May I ask just what are you doing there? --Mttll (talk) 16:34, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Of course you may ask. I'll improve the text and I've tagged for construction. But you deleted the text altogether. Well everybody can expand the articles , but deleting a text written by a fellow editor is not a contribution; it is warring and it contradicts with your good intentions expressed by the user box IRR. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 21:30, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
I deleted text that was no longer accurate. As of 2014, metropolitan municipalities in Turkey overlap with provincial borders. I'm not sure what you are disputing. --Mttll (talk) 21:38, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
No problem with the 2013 population figures. (Türkstat figures have been published.)The problem is with the text. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 21:47, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Your tireless work and prolificness constantly amazes me. Here's to an amazing Wikipedian! Ithinkicahn (talk) 22:16, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
Thank you very much. Although we do our best, we still need more editors contribute to WP Turkey and WP Ottoman Empire. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:26, 2 February 2014 (UTC)


Hi Nedim Ardoğa,

Thanks for paying attention to Yaya article. I linked Alaeddin Pasha based on two sources I cited in the article:

  1. work of John McGilchrist who wrote: "Othman left two sons Orchan the conqueror of the Mongals and the captor of Brusa and Ala ed deen Orchan was elected Emir. He urged his brother to share his throne Ala ed deen refused to consent to any joint sovereignty or to any division of his father's territories He asked only the revenues of a single village for his maintenance Orchan then said Since brother you will not accept the flocks and herds that I offer thee be thou the shepherd of my people be my vizier Orchan took the personal command of his armies Ala ed deen devoted himself to the domestic policy of the state and to the organization and maintenance of the military establishment. It was by Ala ed deen that the Janizaries that corps so long the terror of the Christian world and which exercised almost from their first organization such a large influence in the direction of the Turkish civil and military polity were organized The Ottoman Turks had never yet possessed any semblance of a standing army similar to the military organization which commenced to exist in the kingdoms of the Christian world more than a century after. The same men who fed the flocks on the banks of the Euphrates and Sakaria had followed the banner of Solyman Ertoghrul and Othman in war Such in the main the general body of the nation continued to be the source whence in the time of war the Ottoman troops were drawn But the wisdom of Ala ed deen saw the necessity for the organization of certain forces which should make war their sole business and profession who should be always prepared to act in any sudden exigency Ala ed deen first embodied a corps called Yaya or Piade They were all infantry and were raised and recruited from the body of the Ottoman population He next raised the famous Janizarie" If I understood this correctly, aaccording to this author those two Alladins (vezier and brother) were the same person.
  2. Another source I used (also maybe outdated) says: Aladin, son of raise footmen called Piade or Yaya....

But if you are certain Inalcik says something different, then he certainly has advantage. --Antidiskriminator (talk) 21:37, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

Committee of Union and Progress[edit]

Would you be interested in joining a discussion about this article? --Kansas Bear (talk) 06:09, 3 February 2014 (UTC)

I've replied on the talk page Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 17:28, 3 February 2014 (UTC)


Hello. I see that you are interested in Turkish culture, like this scribe. A user who took the modest name of FoodXpert created the page Ali Nazik Kebab some 5 years ago, with the following text, and then disappeared. "Ali Nazik Kebab or simply Ali Nazik, is a home-style Turkish kebab variety that has originated in the northern Black Sea region. It is made from char-grill smoked and spiced eggplant puree topped with tender, seasoned and marinated cubes of pan sauteed baby lamb. This popular Anatolian kebab is traditionally served with rice pilaf, grilled veggies and melted butter." You may see from the text that the user had no idea about the dish, believing that it originated from the Black Sea Region! As you must well know, as a southerner, the dish is called Alinazik and nothing else. Nowadays the article is titled "Alinazik kebab". I request you to kindly move it to Alinazik, just like in Turkish WP, and because the dish cannot be considered kebab for simply being served at restaurants called "kebapçı". I understand IPs cannot make these changes. Thanks and greetings. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:51, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Hi again. I am afraid you have a confusion about double links. Yourself have provided double links to province articles, one in the map and one in the list of each province.

Category:METU Mustafa Parlar Foundation Science Award[edit]

Hi Nedim Ardoğa! Recently, I've come across the Category:METU Mustafa Parlar Foundation Science Award you'd created. IMO, the cat is better named Category:Recipients of METU Mustafa Parlar Foundation Science Award or Category:METU Mustafa Parlar Foundation Science Award winners, because it contains the recipients/winners. Pls recheck. Cheers. --CeeGee 21:11, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Re: Timeline of electrical and electronic engineering[edit]

Actually I was trying to fix up an edit dump by HiYahhFriend and fact checking led me to expand or correct some of the entries. Splitting the article may be a good idea, or merging the items that fit the topic and deleting the rest, or sending them on to other topics. I would note the old and new lead sentence include allot of the items (allot of computer milestones could be removed, maybe to picky/minor). Lead def could be narrowed to cover more fundamental inventions. Fountains of Bryn Mawr (talk) 19:44, 13 February 2014 (UTC)

Battle of Bitlis[edit]

Would you be interested in finding sources for this article? I am suspicious of HouseofArtaxiad's edits,[2][3][4] which appears to replace information to suit his POV.

SMS Goeben[edit]

Hello. Please do not make non-controversial page moves without discussion. Thank you. Parsecboy (talk) 15:58, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

OK, but the same warning goes to you. Why did you move the name Yavuz To Goeben ? The name was Goeben for the first 5 years and it was Yavuz for the remaining 36 years. If you can judge rationally, you can see that the title should be Yavuz and not Goeben. Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 18:22, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Yavuz is not the most common name in English-language histories. See WP:COMMONNAME.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 18:40, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
The critical limit is established usage which is a rather ambiguous term. So you seem to think that the names of all battleships which participated in WW1 (hundreds of them) have established usage in English Really ? Cheers ! Nedim Ardoğa (talk)
Nedim, I was merely reverting your undiscussed move - there is no problem with what I did.
Nevertheless, the ship is far more famous for what she did while known as Goeben in the English-speaking world than the fifty years she spent quietly in the Turkish Navy after the war. Parsecboy (talk) 18:54, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
I am tired of warring and endless discussions. Use any name you want. But know that you're mistaken. The most important event in the history of the Goeben was her operations against Russian ports. During these operations she was already renamed Yavuz. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 19:07, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
And yet in the English-speaking world, she was still called Goeben until after the end of the war. She wasn't formally transferred to the Turkish Navy until 2 November 1918, you know. Parsecboy (talk) 19:23, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Pardon me for budding in, but! GOEBAN is indeed a very recognizable historic name in English textual references, the other name triggers no I've heard of that reflex. Having said that, We Adults (I've little patience with ANYONE THAT REVERTS w/o discussion first!) usually place both in the title line of the article with more or less equal prominence, and if needed, explain the distinction towards the end of the lead (or led, if you prefer, since... to some "divided by a common language") paragraph. // FrankB 14:34, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

PING-see this answer to your question // FrankB 14:34, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for our effort to inform me about Deliçay. Deliçay (irregular flow river) is a common name and there are many Deliçay rivers. A for your remark on Yavuz; I think the problem with WP is that everybody plays with the proper names. The rule is that when there are too few English-language sources to constitute an established usage, the conventions of the language appropriate to the subject should be used. Well what is too few ? It depends on subjective evaluation. In English the capital of PROC is Pekin. In WP it is Beijing. In English, the people living in Botswana are called Bushmen. But in WP it is San people. In English the name of the scientist is Oersted. But in WP it is Ørsted. But sometimes the reverse is also true. Italian city Frienze becomes Florence and Turkish island Bozcaada becomes Tenedos. I am too aged to struggle against this nonsense. Cheers.Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 18:11, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
Re Wikipedia and names... the first I saw "the names controversy" was back in 2004-or-2005', and it became a motivator to thereafter act as a mediator, as I did for the next three or so wikiyears. That first was a similar controversy... go with a modern changed name, and blow off loads of English language history books referencing Port Arthur (was resulting redirect... now morphed into a disambig page!)... or give the article inclusionary text and context. Revisiting that page at this late date... I'm gratified and actually surprised this has withstood the assault of dozens of new snotnosed know-it-alls. See: Lüshunkou_District. The one thing I've learned about wiki editing -- there are always those with elite mindsets who want to force a solution which they alone are right about. Human activity is messy--so are our compromise fixes, so best to NOT get excised about anything on a wiki. Change it once, argue it two gos... then move on if some ass is being an ass. She/he probably can't help being an ignorant jerk. If it's important, post your arguments ont he talk page and post a notice on the village pump and WP notices to Admins pages that you'd appreciate other experienced editors weigh in, and go with the consensus. If the ass is being an ass, the community will let them know and the heat will be off you.
LOL on the too aged and tired to care on these... notice my talk page heading! This is as much a reason as any for that. IMHO, as the arguments here go to those with the most time to keep arguing after everyone else has lost interest or energy, most controversies end up with the inconsistencies you cite... or "PC" solutions pushed through as a scant consensus formed by the young and inexperienced with little experience to give perspective. Sigh.

Best wishes, // FrankB 18:04, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Draft article[edit]

Hello there. I intended to make a simple article, here but it was rejected. I see that you are experienced in Turkey place articles. Maybe you could add on it a little bit and save this stub. I am kind of disappointed with this Wikipedia thing and doubt if I ever begin another article again. Greetings. -- (talk) 07:52, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Please don't quit. WP needs new editors about Project Turkey articles. But I know sometimes more experienced editors and admins discourage beginners. Be determined and log in. As for the article; one source for a stub is not a reason to delete it. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 08:13, 3 March 2014 (UTC)

Classical Sanskrit[edit]

Dear Nedim, please have a look at Sanskrit and Talk:Sanskrit. I do not want to start a fight, but I think it is incorrect to quickly make a substantial revision of the content, which has been around for a long time, without a proper reference. The subject is Classical Sanskrit, the change was from agglutinative to inflectional, which does not exist in WP and must be instead categorized as Fusional_languages. That mislabeling is confusing, in addition to the change being unsourced. Sanskrit went through 3 different stages from Classical to modern, but still has agglutinative typology, the only question is if the affixes were bonded or fused at the Classical stage as they are now, but my opponent Kwamikagami seems to have decided to resolve the subject with a brute force. I really don't care either way, except that categorization must be clear. Your help will be appreciated.Barefact (talk) 05:21, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Hi, can you try to adopt this when you create articles. If anything you should create e.g Category:Populated places in Mut District and avoid generic categories.♦ Dr. Blofeld 19:29, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Cat:Populated places instead of the Cat:Province ? OK understandable. But region and province are different concepts. The first is a geographical and the later is an administrative category. In some cases one doesn't include the other. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 19:47, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I think it's better organized that way. I believe I started creating categories for Populated places by district.♦ Dr. Blofeld 11:06, 25 April 2014 (UTC)


Yes, in the description it says it is probably the statue of his son Mausolo, rather than Hecatomnus (see also museum entry). More than this I don't know, feel free to replace the image if you want, just possibly create a Commonscat for all the images about this king and please link it to the article. Cheers. --Sailko (talk) 15:09, 1 May 2014 (UTC)


Hello Nedim! If you are interested, and if you have time, could you or some other bilingual user please translate this into English? No worries if you can not find the time, I'll ask elsewhere, but it is about the only major article I could find on her, and it is even more interesting as it is written from the Turkish perspective.

Are you sure that's not the Tunceli district? It seems like that site is only for the Tunceli district. It is only the Tunceli Province's name that has been changed. --Ahmetyal (talk) 13:55, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
I think Norşin, Bitlis has the same problem. The name is changed, but Güroymak is still used [7]. --Ahmetyal (talk) 13:59, 10 June 2014 (UTC)
You have a point while discussing province and district. Yes municipality (belediye) is responsible for the central district. But the governor (valilik) is responsible for all province and it still is Tunceli Valiliği. (You can see similar headings for the other establishments such as Turnceli Universitrsi) I know about democratization package. But it seems they haven't completed the legal procrdure to change the name. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 15:20, 10 June 2014 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Mersin Citrus Festival[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Mersin Citrus Festival requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about an organized event (tour, function, meeting, party, etc.), but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please read more about what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think this page should not be deleted for this reason, you may contest the nomination by visiting the page and clicking the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion". This will give you the opportunity to explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. However, be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag from the page yourself, but do not hesitate to add information in line with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, and you wish to retrieve the deleted material for future reference or improvement, you can place a request here. Epeefleche (talk) 01:15, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Mosque narthex[edit]

Hello Nedim! Have a look here for instance for the usage of "narthex". "...vaulted bays and extending considerably beyond the main body of the mosque, creates the effect of a narthex" or "an arcade or loggia serves as a narthex to the mosque" is the closest to linking the two terms, the rest of the hits are all about Christian churches converted into mosques at a later date. Cheers, Constantine 06:33, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

Well I don't like warring. But please note that you were right in changing the title (cami→ mosque) claiming that the English words should be used in English WP. Well this is not much different . The Turkish phrase is "son cemaat yeri" . Certainly I can't use this phrase in an English text. Its equivalent in English is narthex as I have seen in architecture essays. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 07:33, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
I understand your point, and frankly architecturally it means much the same, but in actual usage, the term is restricted to churches. It would be like calling the "ambon" a "minbar". Both are pulpits, but they belong to different religions and architectural traditions and have different connotations. Likewise the narthex is the technical name for the entrance/lobby/etc. of a church, but can not be used for civic buildings, synagogues, mosques, etc. Constantine 08:23, 10 July 2014 (UTC)

I kept your additions and the only change I made is about the style, which has nothing to do with the contents. Have I missed something ? Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 14:24, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
The newspaper says the sculpture is made of concrete covered by copper, and not of steel.--CeeGee 14:37, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
I see. But the constructor says the opposite.[10] Which is more reliable, the constructor or the newspaper ? Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 14:41, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
If that is reliable then the total height is 40 m. Everything weird.--CeeGee 14:44, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
Please let me give you some other rel refs that might be useful: [11]], [12], [13], [14]. --CeeGee 16:48, 2 September 2014 (UTC)

I received the following mail from the sculptor Sait Rüstem. İyi akşamlar.Yaptığım Kartaltepe MEHMETCİK anıtının kaide yüksekliği yaklaşık 10m ,heykel yüksekliği 22m .olup,beton üzeri bakır kaplamadır.Saygılar.S.Rüstem. Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 18:59, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Very nice to have the fact from the first hand. Maybe he can tell this information to a major newspaper so it can be cited for WP purposes. Thank you for your efforts as well. Cheers. --CeeGee 20:34, 7 September 2014 (UTC)

Osmanlıspor reply[edit]

Thanks for your reply. It totally missed my point (as you can see, I can make translations) as I was looking for sources to the article to make it a reliable one. I will wait coupie of weeks, maybe the club's home page will improve. Thanks for your time spent on this, it's good to know that you can request for help in wikipedia.

Nükhetsezâ Hanımefendi[edit]

I doubt she is the mother of Mustafa IV. Some IP users told in the talk page that Ayse Sine is his mother and Nükhetsezâ is a self-made of the creator of this article. What do you think? Keivan.fTalk 11:33, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

The sources are conflicting. According to Halil İbrahim İnal, the mother of Mustafa IV was Nükhet. But I am not sure. Some sources may confuse step mothers for the biological mothers. Please see the talk page. You can see that there had been previous discussions on this issue. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 20:24, 21 September 2014 (UTC)
Well, this situation is similar to the problem that we have about Bayezid II's mother. I think both of these names should be included in Mustafa IV's article. Keivan.fTalk 21:07, 21 September 2014 (UTC)

Ottoman capture of Adrianople[edit]

Hi Nedim. I did some updates in Turkish Wikipedia according to an article written by Halil İnalcık. He "proves" that the year of the conquest is 1361 in his article. Can you update the article in here as well? Have a nice day.--Rapsar (talk) 13:50, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

You're right. The date should be 1361 and in fact it was in the older versions of the article . But User: Cplakidas who is a member of Project Ottoman Empire, rejected it and claimed that it was a Turkish POV. Please see the earlier versions (before the date controversy) and the related discussion in the talk page. Cheers. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 16:19, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
Erm, to be clear, it is not a POV issue, but of conflicting sources. Inalcik may have "proven" the date supported by the Turkish sources, but there are many other schoplars who are not convinced, like Zachariadou, who for this period is just as much an authority as Inalcik. As long as there is no consensus, WP should not support one view over another. Constantine 16:24, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Arkadaş Türkçe bilmiyor sanırım, ben anlatmak istediğimi daha doğru ve eksiksiz bir biçimde anlatmak için Türkçe yazacağım, önemli noktaları İngilizceye çevirebilirsin anlasın diye. Şimdi, Halil İnalcık, Osmanlı'nın kuruluş dönemi konusundaki en iyi tarihçilerdendir, belki de en iyisidir, bilirsiniz. Kendisi bu makalede yalnızca Türk/Osmanlı kaynaklarını kullanmamış; Matteo Villani, Oskar Halecki gibi yabancı tarihçilerden de yararlanmış. Burmov'un, Jireček'in ve hatta Uzunçarşılı'nın öne sürdüğü iddiaları bir bir çürütmüş, "Osmanlı ve yabancı kaynakları da birbirleriyle karşılaştırarak" yanlışlıkları ve uyuşmazlıkları ortaya koymuş. Zachariadou'nun İngilizce makalesi varsa, yahut İngilizceye çevirebilirse arkadaş, seve seve maddeye ekleriz. Ancak tek başına "Edirne'nin fethedildiği yıl güneş tutuldu" ifadesi dahi yeterli gibi.--Rapsar (talk) 18:53, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
Solar eclipse is of course important. But I couldn't find any eclipse observable in Ottoman or Byzantine territory in 1361 or in the following years.(see List of solar eclipses in the 14th century) The nearest one was in May 5 1361, observable around Rize and its width was only 224 km. much too narrow to be observed around Edirne. Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 20:14, 4 November 2014 (UTC)
G"üneş tutulması olduğu yıl fetih gerçekleşti" deniyor yalnız, "fetih sırasında Güneş tutuldu" değil :) Yani o yılın herhangi bir günü bu olay gerçekleşmişti.--Rapsar (talk) 22:03, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

Output power of a TV transmitter[edit]

Hi, on 16th of Dec, you have added the following statement to the article Output power of an analog TV transmitter:

The transmission of FM audio (including Stereo subcarriers) is only overall the 3rd largest consumer of TV transmitter power. Being a non native speaker of English I am rather at a loss. What does 3rd largest consumer refer to in this article ? Does it refer to the percentage of the power?

Can you please be a bit more specific. Thanks Nedim Ardoğa (talk) 17:51, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

In order of power demand or consumption, analogue TV transmitters (most to least power)

1. Sync Pulses, Video ~60% to 70% except for FRANCE SECAM where this is only 10%

2. Video High Frequencies, and Colour Subcarriers ~20%

3. FM Audio Subcarriers, except for FRANCE SECAM where the audio is AM, and may use 20% of transmitter energy.

FRANCE's SECAM was always the oddball TV system but BRAZIL's PAL-M was also weird too.

With digital TV most of the strange incompatibilities between TV systems have passed into history, but problems of compatibility remain.

This basic information has somehow not been translated into Turkish, but is a commonly know fact among TV broadcast engineers.

If it makes you feel any better, MONDO FOX (a Spanish language network in the USA) is running the Widescreen "Suliman, the Great Sultan" from Turkish Telly. Turkey's TV broadcast infrastructure is as good as western Europe's, this series implies.
